Google highlighted a new service or more specifically search option this week referred to as Recipe View.

Recipe View lets you narrow your search results to show only recipes, and helps you choose the right recipe amongst the search results by showing clearly marked ratings, ingredients and pictures.  Recipe View is built right into a typical Google search.  If you are interested in a recipe for hamburgers go to www.google.com and search for the word hamburgers.  The first result (for us) was a Wikipedia page defining hamburger.  Look along the left side of the results page and click on “Recipes.”  You may have to click on the “More” to get the Recipe link to show up first.

Once you click on “Recipes” all of the search results will be narrowed and you’ll be given further filtering options like ingredients, cooking time and calories.   After hitting Recipe the Wikipedia page was gone replaced by a link on how to make a Hamburger with Double Cheddar Cheese, Grilled Vidalia Onions and more.  Here is a two minute video made by one of the Google Chefs that demonstrates the new feature.

For even more information here is a link to the original Google post about Recipe View.  Happy searching.
